Ray Newal

Managing Director, Ryerson Futures



Ray is a globally inspired entrepreneur and early stage tech investor. He started his career in sales and business development, leading teams at DoubleClick, MSN, and Yahoo.

In 2008, Ray set out as an entrepreneur to address the burgeoning appetite for mobile video content in emerging markets; a journey which entailed raising capital from a top tier VC, relocating to a foreign country, and managing teams separated by significant geographical and social distance. 

Following an exit in 2015, Ray has been advising and mentoring founders across the globe. He currently serves the Toronto startup community as Managing Director at Ryerson Futures, where he coaches and invests in early stage tech companies.
